The country is full of people who want to adopt a healthy white baby, the system is full of those with disabilities and minorities.

Rape is traumatic enough without making these women, many of them kids, go through the trauma of having to carry around a reminder of that awful incident for nine months. I can't ask a living, breathing, conscious human being to go through that kind of mental torture for something that doesn't breathe, doesn't have a proper nervous system to feel, and doesn't even have the consciousness of my cat.
As for "living with the horror of murder" from getting an abortion...seriously? I've known girls who got abortions after being raped, and the only reason it was hard for them to deal with was because they kept having people who knew about it calling them murderers and looking at them like they were Satan. In short, it wasn't the act itself that caused them pain, it was everybody else's reactions to their decision.
And it's bad enough when people like him go on about having to keep the kid and making the best of a bad situation. But for him to say that they have to recognize they've been given a gift is just unimaginably disgusting.
